Spice up your food and your English by learning how to talk about seasonings in cooking in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:17 Explanations: 2:48 Fast dialog: 15:55 Gisela: That smells wonderful! Danny: This is my family’s recipe. The secret is in the combination of seasonings we use. Gisela: I can see that. You must have 30 different dried and fresh herbs and spices on this counter. Danny: To get a bold flavor, we use a lot of aromatic seeds, barks, and roots. Gisela: How much do you put in of each one? Danny: Precise measurements aren’t really necessary. I put in a pinch of this and a dash of that. I add them to taste. Gisela: So getting the recipe wouldn’t do me any good, huh? Danny: I’m afraid not. I learned how to make this in my mother’s kitchen. Gisela: Would you teach me if I volunteered to be your apprentice, doing all of your prep work? Danny: That depends. Gisela: On what? Danny: On how quick you are with this potato peeler.
